Joyce Making Dresses

Somehow, there is a way to go shopping in the middle of the bush in rural Ghana. And I found out how. I'm sure that's not too hard for some of you to believe.

At the local markets, many of the women sold colorful fabric. One of the missionaries introduced me to a local tailor, Joyce, who had a shop right outside the hospital. Joyce made beautiful African dresses. She is a stunning African woman who finds a way to manage a tailor shop and care for her several young children.

Here is one of the dresses Joyce made for me. Kat and Beth (also pictured) were fourth year medical students from Tennessee who were on our medical team. They had skirts made for their match day :)
